I am also showing that my car has cleared customs! Thats seems amazingly fast, especially with the holiday, but I'll take it.
Anyone have any idea how long we should expect in VPC? If it really has cleared customs then it should be less than 2 weeks to get it trucked out to the middle of the country, I hope.

Was the ship a day late getting into the port? Brunswick is my port scheduled for 7/9.

No, they changed the arrival date a few weeks ago from the 4th to the 5th. I doubt the dock workers are on the job on the 4th anyway.
The W&W website still shows the Don Juan arriving in Brunswick on the 9th

Hey Vern: Now that our vehicles have cleared Customs do we not have a way tracking at VPC and to our respective dealerships other than depending upon our CA's that have all ready spent their commissions from their sale ? LOL

At this point I always get my information from my CA. He seems to always be on top of things and he gets the latest update on it. It is always good to know where your car is and when you will ge it for insurance purposes. Good luck.

How are you guys tracking it? I tried tracking it on E H Harms website by using my last name and VIN and it says 'No matching vehicle found'.

I am using following URL.

https://eurodelivery.ehharms.com/edts/ehharms/

Is this the right website? or do I need some other info to track it?

Any insight would be appreciated.

I have used these 2 sites to track the boat, Don Juan. The boat doesn't always show up on each site but keep trying.

I use this sight:
Got to "I want to" and select "track and trace my cargo"
Under Cargo ID, put your VIN number
I'm not sure how much help this will be now that the ship is in port. I checked with my CA and he said my car is in port and I should see it by the end of next week. I sure hope so!

These websites only track the vessel. How can I track stuff like customs clearance etc.?

Oops. Sorry, I forgot the link:
http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp

It does say mine was released from customs, but I'm not sure how accurate it is. Now that its in country I think your best bet is to check with your rep, even if you are a bit of a pain in the ass.

For all of you that had the luxury ride across the pond on the Don Juan, good news has just hit posting. Vehicles that have passed Customs and VDC are presently scheduled for appropriate motor carriers today to their respective dealers !

Mine just reached Brunswick today. The ship tracking sites do not show Don Juan at all now.
What does this status mean from WWL?

It's the end of the line for tracking. Your car has been discharged from the freight line carrier. Now you have to depend upon your CA for update information as to status on your vehicle. Good luck.
